Other than cutting the receivers, what else needs to be done to legally import AK47 "kits" from overseas? Any BATF/Customs paperwork?

Thanks.

There has also been a barrel import ban since 2005.

There are a lot of import restrictions on gun parts in general, not just the receivers. Barrels, magazines, scopes, sights, probably a long list of parts. I think it's tricky to legally import any gun permits, and needs to be done by a licensed importer. Look up ITAR.

Your welcome. Please don't tease us though. What country are they from, and which AK variant?

How difficult is it to import ammunition or components.

The stuff I want to stock pile is the "Primo Stuff", but when it comes to practice, I don't need primo, good enough will do.

Perhaps other countries might have stockpiles of surplus ammo they may sell.
If it was cost effective, it would make for a interesting group buy.

If we had 100 people who wanted 2000 rounds of ammo, we are talking 200,000 rounds of Ammo. What if is was 1000 people, we are looking at 2 million rounds of ammo.

What if we had 1000 or more people who wanted 10,000 rounds of ammo each. Now we are talking 10 million rounds of ammo.

Oh, and we have how many people on this board?
